How REALTORS® are like ducks

You know that saying about ducks being calm on the surface but paddling energetically below the water? I think that's a fair description of most Texas REALTORS®.

What you see is a composed professional guiding you through your real estate transaction. Behind the scenes, where you may not notice, your REALTOR® is working hard on countless important tasks:

  • Analyzing data to help you with pricing and offer decisions

  • Marketing the property through multiple channels to provide maximum exposure (sellers/lessors) or sifting through multiple properties to find all options that meet your criteria (buyers/lessees)

  • Calling, emailing, and texting the other party's agent to keep the transaction moving

  • Monitoring deadlines to ensure nothing slips through the cracks

  • Dealing with complications related to financing, inspections, surveys, appraisals, and insurance

  • Learning about the latest state government-mandated changes to real estate contracts and managing details brought about by recent federal lending changes to ensure the transaction goes smoothly.

This list could go on-and each of these activities could be further broken down into multiple steps-but you get the idea: Your Texas REALTOR® is working hard on your behalf in all kinds of ways.
